HELSINKI CONTEMPORARY focuses on long term collaboration with both emerging and more established artists who take a physical, in-depth approach to their work. The artistic profile is not restricted by media, in stead the priority is on visual art of current interest that is in dialogue with both the society surrounding it and the space in which it is presented. In the collaboration with the artist the gallery accentuates curatorial commitment and focus on the content of the art.
HELSINKI CONTEMPORARY emphasises the importance of experiencing works of art on site, together with other people. Besides the exhibitions in the gallery space, Helsinki Contemporary produces shows and events in temporary spaces and public locations in the city. Artist talks and debates are a vital part of the programme. The gallery also establishes an active international presence through engagement in fairs, collaborations and publications. The gallery strives to close collaboration with art institutions in both Finland and abroad.
HELSINKI CONTEMPORARY continues the successful work of Gallery Kalhama & Piippo Contemporary, established in 2007.
